russia says videos claiming to show a chemical attack in syria. part of a smear campaign against president assad. c.n.n. accuses donald trump of promoting violence against journalists after the president played some wrestling with showing him taking down the channel also the south. downs in seventeen compared to russian called germany one goal to get that goal will bring you the chances and all the draw in a few minutes. thanks for joining us on our team and asked
a lot from moscow. welcome to the program now the russian foreign ministry has condemned what it calls a smear campaign against the syrian government ministries spoke so one of i was referring to video circulating online claiming to show the off some off of a chemical weapons attack ordered by president assad the social media smear campaign under the banner assad used chemical weapons has now started just as we predicted you'll see more of this fake videos over the following days the complain this plan to be on a grand scale. videos purporting to show victims of the chemical attack by the syrian military flooded social media on saturday that was off the white house accuse the syrian government of preparing to use chemical weapons syrian journalist a lot abraham says the accusation makes no sense but come out of the strong issued a statement denying any use of chemical weapons saying that there's actually is a world known tactic used by dong terrorist groups according to the statement of
the syrian army when these groups feel that they are on the fallback they try to stage chemical attacks to stop them from advancing if we're going to discuss the circumstances surrounding these attacks and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the syrian government when swimming mill time when achieving actually substantial most regains or more than one from that it would do something that would enable the rebels to benefit from international support which would actually forced on me to bring its operations into a complete halt i would washington was asked to back up its allegations that damascus was preparing a chemical attack it failed to provide any evidence as that explains the u.s. doesn't seem to need much proof when it comes to accusing assad russia alice said there's one hundred bad habit and that's how it is and he only does this when he's winning he ruins everything but doing something really stupid for no reason at all . take oh me now they crushing islamic states
liberating vul swathes of syria and out of the blue comes this. the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime i'm said knows the pro book consequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now the could ruin him by giving his enemies pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a plastic super villain both stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind a villain man would go off and america is batman. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if it does something really dumb for no
reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action and if you've been following events in syria recently you know they are hitting the united states has attacked and said point it's time for what they say is silly bandz. problem is just the following the true long conflict isn't easy western voters don't want another gung ho ho mean campaign they learned their lesson all for the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions the only thing left is to wait for asset to give them a cools and since he's a comic book supervillain that's just part of the script. john oberg
director of the trans national foundation for peace and future research says the west the media's campaign to demonize assad is verging on fossil the mainstream media the large media that are influencing the western decision making process and just citizens of opinion about this you take the case for instance of the totally black patronage that is painted of our last now nobody can be as evil as he's been made in the western world it is very important that we are aware that not only good analysis is dead wrong it's all good in the background these days in international politics. u.s. president don't trump has taken another swipe at the media posting a mock video of a wrestling match between him and c n n you were
with. trump has repeatedly accused c.n.n. of broadcasting fake news about him in a tweet he said he was thinking of changing the channels name to ford news c n n. the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house but i'm president and they're not i the fact is the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far. c.n.n. responded with their own tweets accusing the president of juvenile behavior and encouraging violence against protesters against the political reporters rather political analyst charles alltel believes and channel brought the situation upon itself in the case of c.n.n. we are talking as regards trump and indeed as against the conservative elements of the united states of america of a nonstop this information campaign and when it comes to trump spewing fraudulent
nonsense about you know what it happened in the election and after the election they've severely lost their way which is evidenced i think in the long term trend in their viewership but let's remember this is the network admittedly they later fired kathy griffin for holding up a mock severed head of our president and c.n.n. the same network is complaining about a cartoon i mean give me a break i would say that c.n.n. has a lot better things to do than they than they did for example a couple years ago wasting all the time on the missing malaysian flight and then in the last number of months here going on and on and on about this suppose a russian collusion hacking story which i i hope at this point has been dealt with i mean see it's kind of rich for c.n.n. to call the pot calling the kettle black here c.n.n. has been on the offensive throughout the week several undercover videos posted
online exposing at issues at the channel towards russia related stories. the more i see them constantly in. russia the problem with. this is ratings those ratings. there is a little rain but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly right now we don't know. proof. what do you think's going to happen to move the whole russia i think you. really. you just saw a c.n.n. producer and one of their political commentators the last one van jones responded to the undercover video he said his words had been taken out of context and that he did not think there was nothing to claims team trump colluded with russia and both videos were released by investigative journalism group project veritas their founder is already facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit over an undercover videos thing against democratic
organizations and activists we asked americans what they think about their media's coverage of russia related stories. are you tired of hearing about trump and russia yes actually i guess that's all i hear about it it's just getting a little tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to be the truth has to come out and the truth is that that there was interference in the american electorate system but by putin the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. as they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would but that's something you know if it if there is something secret about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open if there is something else come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less less i'd like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i
know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it or else the people behind the undercover video what they russia hope thing refers to we do the entire video out there i mean people can judge for themselves sometimes you have to infer things from the conversation but that's certainly my interpretation and i think that's the way the mainstream media from first reading it what the way the drug war and look at the line of strikes again in the president of the united states just to a radio is not a good earth in the instagram for you know so i'm assuming you're curious as well it's not just c.n.n. i want to make this very clear if you were in the mainstream media in america you know you are telling a lie you are getting people you are keeping stories you're keeping them a little or none of them through you're on our list. and china has sent military vessels on planes to warn off an american warship beijing claims the vessel violated its the material waters in the south china sea. under the pretext of
navigation freedom the u.s. side once again since a military vessel into china's territorial wood says this constitutes a serious political and military provocation the chinese side is dissatisfied with and opposed to the relevant behavior of the u.s. side of the u.s. guided missile destroyer came within twelve nautical miles of try to nine and its part of the disputed para so island group which china considers to be its own territory this comes at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries and washington recently announced plans to sell arms worth one point four billion dollars to taiwan the move infuriated china and raise doubts of a president trump's efforts through improve relations with beijing jim dean editor of veterans today told us the dispute in the south china sea is unlikely to die down this is part of a sparring campaign that i think is going to go on for quite a while this this dispute over who has sovereignty over the south china sea
is going to be with us for years it really doesn't involve the united states because it's on the other side of the world but the us likes to show the flag but china has major interest here because it's got a billion people a huge energy. appetite which it's spending a lot of its foreign earnings importing so a long range if there is energy found in this area it wants to lay claim to it and of course the u.s. is basically saying we will we will challenge that of the break we'll bring you coverage from the confederations cup final.
one of the biggest challenges that any investigators face in dealing with cyber crime. who did it where did it come from and as we've seen with many of these attacks mean you've mentioned one across the recent run somewhere it's still unclear where that originated so our clear message to government is to work together around the world to minimize this risk to grow those relationships and make sure that diplomacy is the key to everything.
germany has one beefy for confederations cup for the first time defeating chile one mill in st petersburg. bring you special coverage. the beautiful white knight says they create this kind of secularly fantastic evening for germany the world champions are now going around the twenty seventeen confederations cup winners with a well known victory over chile alongside me stan collymore you called this you said germany going to win it maybe not in the fashion you predicted no i think that's huge congratulations us to go to the truly national team as well was almost nothing tonight by point who live there are the bodies on the line my stock to extremely well huge congratulations to them and i'm sure that they wouldn't want to
lose the game in the middle of the aidid but when you send so many players forward so often there's always the possibility of that and you can get hurt and that's exactly how i said it was the mano that we expect germany to win in that they were expected to boss the game that chile would defend him the other way around chile dominee to position throughout germany snatch the chance to talk us through this is shocking moment for the defender the central defender for chile he was the man you just see the ideas on the edge of his own books and you just don't want him in possession the board you have to keep the ball moving in particular when you've got you know you've lee hungry players chasing around you to look to win the ball that's exactly what germany did i could feel the pain of those magnificent chile found some of whom we've met i know some of them were in the fans and here in st petersburg a very old cake pops it was a must have been some all for disappointing that. hi there neal a stand i do have. other
issues they consider racist given it is. raging success as we know the have a beat anybody who would submit your racism or who you get is a hyper fave you're all the other things people were talking about with the tour events but it still be pretty chilly here and it's all got off pretty well and these guys are ninety two people were to the base the federation sculpey wherever the next one comes in to russia what they are looking for it's a job as a good thing to do i guess. but if we were all six chile is we caught up with the fans and the team as they were leaving the hotel i do this often a load. lays it gently down but it. got he got. out of he got me that he got right
that he got the. hat but they say good morning. to you that you that i'm actually getting here is getting pretty noisy is. the only thing i know hello to even though they're rich a bit chilly in german name one is that you can think of adorations cut champions for the first time they don't mind hearing to be suspect they don't mind here in russia i just had a fantastic bod saying as you can hear. this. bank you carry two so we heard from your man that isn't by the by legend two time olympic gold medalist on dumbasses no for the faithful woke up washington peasant nineteen she spoke to want to you know now i am about to post impressions compunctions one of the things going into the tournament there were a lot of scary stories would russia be able to host a tournament of this size the press
a lot of the western press are saying russia has welcomed the world they've done well people are writing great stories about it how happy how satisfied are you with the reaction from the press not just the fans here well of course. cybill a good reaction from the press because it's important. to wards of what who we are and what we are doing here and when they speak in a good way about us for us it to be good to have meant and of course i would like to see on few hundreds. of lives minute cervical minutes to the ever seen and everyone in the country and really every year look forward to provide the best. jump and ships two thousand one hundred and just a word to legacy what what russia leaves behind here when it comes to confederations on the world cup how important are looking at a beautiful stadium here lots of new buildings infrastructure the importance of the legacy the importance of what russia lease behind after these events well of course . there will championships it gives as the huge boost for development we will
develop football in our country here more than it was before because now we have opportunity to have such a beautiful stadium as you mentioned before of course of course we will grow up our football players throw from young so we create their new football school so they didn't have that that we didn't have before because if you'd never had their world championships so of course for development of football it's a huge. huge cheer task if i could see and now all the infrastructure survey will help us in that and we've tried to give you guys a sense of. the culture a flavor of what it's like to be in russia to meet russian people to enjoy the culture of the cuisine and i want to take you back stan because this journey for us started two months ago when we sort of went on a reconnaissance mission around the four hundred cities we met some fascinating people people on the street members of the public celebrities when the first things
we have a drum of this you learn a song be ready we should finish as we started i think you are leaving. singalong. oh i should thank you see you again next year for that fateful world call. this week saw the u.k.'s minority conservative government finally sun a deal with northern ireland's democratic unionist party to shore up its power the agreement came at a price though with prime minister to resign my agreeing to provide an extra billion pounds for the province over the next two years we have reached an
agreement with the conservative party on support for government in parliament this agreement will operate to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this vital time. sees the prime minister backtrack on a number of key election pledges including reforms to pensions and benefits and as the see it has been taking a closer look. was writing something there was a no nonsense oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh instead of stepping down the british prime minister had a different plan but it seemed like whichever way she turned there was potential for trouble the tories have penned a deal with the democratic unionist party of northern ireland which is opposed to hard bracks it something may has accepted as a possibility on top of that the d u p have been criticised for their policies on same sex marriage and abortion as well as previous links with violent paramilitary groups in northern ireland not a perfect ally but attendee u.p.a.
m.p.'s have been crucial for theresa may so much so she was ready to pay their support again with a hefty price tag of one billion pounds to be spent over the next three years that's in addition to the previously announced five hundred million and funds to northern ireland and who is footing the bill you may ask as always the taxpayer taxpayers resent politicians cooking up deals behind closed doors that invariably end with their cash being thrown wherever it's politically advantageous rather than where it could be best spent to recently called it a good deal and the do you be are delighted if you think the same applies to scotland and wales think again this is the worst kind of pork barrel politics which has shredded the last vestiges of credibility of this weekend prime minister it is outrageous that the prime minister believes she can secure her own political future by throwing money at northern ireland was completely ignoring the rest of the u.k. despite the british government having now plastered together a solution the question is for how long will it stick after all the irony is that
a mere seven tory m.p.'s switching sides would potentially be enough for a majority to slip away and party fund it. opposition leader jeremy corbin claim the deal was not in the national interest but rather in may's own interest and he was concerned about where the money was coming from and why no other parts of the u.k. receiving extra funds asked the radio host and politics professor for their views geez it managed to get this group the little coalition together but the do you pretty hotel to see she's still a minority government i think she's going to have real problems lasting i think they'll be an election by toba i think she'll find it very very difficult to hold this government together because don't forget she's got to be pleased to see you three see she's also got a. divided party on the conservative party to still be massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is breaks it out even more so it might make you
a little bit was more secure for a few days but this is no answer i think it bites that obviously makes position more secure because with the do you play they have a working majority of thirteen of course you don't leave your ploys to confidence and supply matters government isn't going to get much of a legislative program through but that was over didn't in the thin nature of the queen's speech in a sense it's save the conservatives what could have been a great deal of trouble with some of their own supporters who were very unhappy about these changes it's going to make it more difficult for the conservatives to balance the books which they're having problems with anyway in terms of trying to reduce the budget deficit to a manageable level. next on t.v. a report on the brutal drug war in the philippines if you're watching us in the u.k. or ireland a story of an environmental disaster in india caused by a budding health you'll see again next.
week i did it was going to cut this off p.b.s. kids. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to try to be for us it's like them before three of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the water how. things should.
last alone the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life to live for us on the semester was such a traditional story son not just stands by him sometime soon as we know it's my money into a school days i'm back on my feet while the city's tried desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations. but. is it.
the wonderful blood donation. or three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific. around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity. that's one of the side of. the . money on your car. half of all plasma based drugs today come from private companies. and. one of the risks of pay donation. is proof that the frequency of. it.
the most of the few but really the bombs were not the dummies. almost every night so there is awakening and then that's the new reality in the philippines while the government is focused on eradicating drugs from the country all of these are piling up everywhere else over twelve million filipinos live in extreme poverty and many sell drugs to make a living. this is one of the poorest parts of the capital where people sleep on graves and kids who are used as human shields. and. then.
